We have a bunch of new photos on our computer screen saver and it made me realize how much jewelry I've made this year! I think everyone should do it. It's totally inspiring. Pick some jewelry pictures that inspire you, load them up and get those creative juices flowing.
When I get tired of these pix, I'm thinking about replacing them with other images that will inspire creativity, like collections of different beads and jewelry making materials. The screen saver is kind of a passive creativity journal because all you do is snap pix and then watch them float by.
This necklace started life with a different pendant but it never felt quite right. Now that I've added the Katiedids™ Creative Component pendant, I think it's going to stay this way. I love the blues, of course.
The lowdown: SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS Pacific opal and indicolite crystals mixed with Amazonite rondelles, mother of pearl shell loop beads, white freshwater pearls, silver spacers and a vintage faux pearl button in the center of the pendant.
